Nothing and No One Can Be Trusted

In a New York Times article, Theater Review; Where trust Is Smothered By Violence by Ben Brantley, he states:

“For New Yorkers living in the elongated shadow of Sept. 11, the waking dreamscape of ‘Far Away,’ where the promise of violence broods in even the coziest corners, is bound to feel familiar. Ms. Churchill envisions a world in which nothing, but nothing, is to be trusted.”

Until doing a little research and reading this review, I would not have directly related this play to the feeling the New York City citizens felt facing the tragedy of 9/11, although I did feel that the theme of this play revolved around fear.
